Some of you may recall that I already reviewed a Kate bb cream, that I already reviewed a Kate Mineral bb uv base at that, it's here. If anyone read that review, you would remember that I really disliked the previous iteration of a mineral bb from Kate.
But NINE months later here we are another kate bb cream and i'll tell you why, IT'S REALLY REALLY AWESOME!
as early as now let me apologize for my cams, it's been such a really weird week for taking pictures. in the morning you get the sun, but by the time i get to put on my make up, the sun will be hiding behind clouds and it would be raining! and we've been having stormy weather :-(
but i do hope i do this bb cream the justice it deserves.
Thank you for the product description Ms Yannie ^_^
thank you ratzillacosme for the ingredients, click on the pic to read the ingredients more clearly
swatcheeejust as bobbi brown likes it, yellow LOL
well, it certainly offset my dark circles and pink areas around my nose!but the oxides makes it reflective
but it's really nice when i look at myself in the mirror, like in real life
and quite dewy/satiny
memba this picture?! mom and me at the Kate Feel Your Beauty Animation Part III Event at SM North.
The picture above is what made me buy this bb cream.
|Aspect||KATE MINERAL BB GEL CREAM SPF30 PA++||Kanebo Kate Makeup Base BB UV SPF31 PA++|
|Shade Match||just right for my nc20 skin shade|
(btw, this is available in 3 shades ^_^)
|if it actually shows up on my skin, the shade i have is about right|
|Coverage||medium to buildable coverage||light to almost no coverage O_o|
|Finish||satin finish||powdery matte finish|
|Sun Protection||SPF30 PA ++ enough for indoors||SPF31 PA ++ enough for indoors what's one between friends LOL|
|Lasting Power||lasts all day||4-6 hours|
|Oil Control||moderate 3/5 - 5 being really awesome like no need to blot||same|
|Break Out||none so far||none|
|Packaging||very convenient for travel, sanitary||same|
|Price||PhP900 for 30g =(||US$17+ fr imomoko.com around PhP700+ for 25g (but i think it's been discontinued in lieu of their new and updated and improved bb)|
|Recommend-ability||Definitely for girls with NC20-25||for girls NC25-30|
|As a Base||can stand alone as a 'foundation'||it's more of a base and you'd need a foundation on top|
|Will I repurchase?||most likely||no - limited edition, it's no longer available (at least i don't think so)|
i love this bb cream. I'VE GOT TONS OF BB CREAM for Shatner's sake but the coverage and the finish of THIS newer bb cream from Kate made me look hmmm virginal hahaha hangpucha may ganon? o.O
this is the bb cream that made me a believer in drugstore Japanese brands ;-)
